Summer is here, which usually means spending more money… Therefore it might be a good idea to check out these ideas to save some money.
It might be a good idea to get a Discovery pass. Canada celebrates its 150th birthday together with you by giving out the Discovery passes. With these passes you can enter several national heritage sites and national parks in Canada such as Fort Langley and Kicking Horse Pass without paying any admissions. You can either order these passes online or visit one of Parks Canada’s partners. For example, you could go to Mountain Equipment Co-op in Vancouver to get your Discovery Pass.
If you are planning on doing a roadtrip to one of the national parks in Canada, then you only need to have one Discovery Pass per vehicle. Parks in BC include: Glacier National Park, Gulf Islands National Park, Gwaii Haanas National Park, Pacific Rim National Park, Mount Revelstoke National Park and Yoho National Park. There are also several other free events taking place in this year because of Canada’s 150th birthday, so you should definitely check it out!
When you rather go on an adventure in Vancouver, then you can try out Geocaching. When you’re playing Geocaching you are on a treasure hunt for hidden objects. These objects can be anywhere throughout the city, so it might be that there is one close to you right now! Geocaching gives you the opportunity to explore Vancouver in a different way and to discover new places, so it is a great option when you already saw all the normal tourist attractions in Vancouver.
Good luck on your new adventures! I hope this all will help you to save money, because you will definitely need it for the Rockies trip!
